Please sign our petition to create a parent-friendly skiing option at Mount Bachelor. Many parents have shared that they are unable to ski with their young children at an affordable rate. Current options are limited to season passes ($999 at present), 1-day passes (generally $70 when children are out of school), 12-day passes ($45.83 to $550 per ticket depending on use, excludes school breaks/holidays), Club Card passes ($52.42 to $79 per ticket depending on use, excludes school breaks/holidays), and the Carrousel lift (for novices only).  As 4-8 year old children are often quite happy to ski 2-3 runs of Marshmallow per day, these rates render each Marshmallow run upwards of $35 ($70 general day pass when children are out of school /2) . Although pre-season discounts were available prior to October 1st (e.g., season passes were $799), related costs were still prohibitive. I have corresponded with Andy Goggins at Mount Bachelor in an attempt to reinstate the points pass system and/or create a parent's pass and have yet to achieve results.  Please sign this petition to show your interest in a ski pass that will allow parents to ski with their children and/or ski a few runs alone before returning to their families at home.  Please forward this to anyone you know who might be interested in this cause.  Thank you!  For those of you whose children are not yet 4, this petition was inspired when its author's 5-year-old daughter took a "Mighty Mites" course and begged her mother to ski "just one run" with her before and/or after class in order to show off her skills.  It was heartbreaking to have to repeatedly decline, as "just one run" of Marshmallow would have cost $70.
